An SUV crashed into the Telferner Post Office at 11 a.m. Saturday, causing damage to the front of the building on 319 Farm-to-Market Road 1686.

The vehicle was driven by Mary Kliem, 85, of Telferner, whose foot slipped and hit the accelerator, said Trooper Ruben San Miguel, of the Texas Department of Public Safety. There were no injuries. The road was wet, he said, and troopers did not issue a citation.

All retail and post office box operations will be moved temporarily until further notice to the Inez Post Office at 125 Church St., according to a USPS news release.

Mail for Telferner post office box customers is available at the Inez Post Office retail counter during business hours, which will be temporarily adjusted to 7:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The office is closed on weekends.

If the Telferner Post Office has not resumed operations by Saturday, the Inez office will be open from 7:15 to 9 a.m. Saturday.

USPS spokesman Sam Bolen apologized Monday for any inconvenience to customers and said the agency will be working to restore the Telferner office as soon as possible.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
